Adam and Eve


Dallas Museum of Art

Jean François de Troy depicts the final moments of Adam and Eve in Paradise. Their tender glances and gentle caresses hint at the childlike purity and innocence of humanity before the Fall, and they remain unaware of the consequences their actions will provoke.

Sharp observers will find the artist's signature and the date, 1718, inscribed on the trunk of the tree above Adam and Eve.
